|New Miniature M12 Molded Junction Box - The Industry's Smallest Footprint Yet!|
|Minneapolis, MNMay 22, 2002TURCK Inc. introduces a new, miniature-size eurofast® junction box; the smallest M12 molded junction ever offered! The small footprint of the 4-port, dual or single output junction offers greater installation flexibility to OEM machine builders without compromising the features and benefits of larger models.
The miniature 4-port fully potted nylon junctions are available in 4-pin single or 5-pin dual outputs per port with optional power and signal LEDs. The 4-pin model uses an M12 thread size Homerun connection for power to the box and the 5-pin model uses an M16 thread size connection, both models offer an integral cable as an option. Homerun connectors available in straight or right angle styles with high-flex PVC or PUR cable construction. An accessory option (shown in photo) is a separate tiny, splitter "tee" which allows two sensors access to each dual output port. Operating current is 4 Amps per port, total operating current 2-4 Amps for 4-pin versions and 3-6 Amps for 5-pin versions, operating voltage 10-48 VDC and protection rating IP 67.
Junction boxes offer a convenient way to maintain, identify and consolidate machine or panel wiring from multiple I/O devices and can be used as inputs or outputs. By selecting a smaller size junction box, manufacturers can reduce the total weight and space requirements for wiring consolidation and cut equipment maintenance costs.
